Chris Karn, Rocco Deluca

A majority of Rocco Deluca's self titled album 'Rocco Deluca' was recorded at Effie House in Los Angeles by Producer / Engineer Chris Karn. The Mercury M72s, Mercury 66, and especially the Mercury GPQ15s were heavily used throughout the recordings. On the track "Thief and the Moon", all mic amplifiers used were either M72s and / or GrandPreQ15s from Mercury Recording Equipment. The album was produced and mixed by Daniel Lanois.

Gabriel Shepard, MacClain & Cole

Gabriel Shepard recorded "New Year's Day" by MacClain & Cole at 25th Street Recording.

"Jason's Martin Acoustic Guitar: Telefunken ELAM 251 > Mercury GPQ15s around the 12th fret about 8" away pointed slightly to the body; Neumann km84i > Mercury GPQ15s next to the 251 pointed at the 12th fret.    Amy's Vocal & Percussion: Telefunken ELAM 251 > Mercury M72s > Mercury 66 > Mercury EQ-P1.   Drums: Telefunken ELAM 251 > Mercury M76m at about 10'; Neumann km84i > Mercury M72s > Mercury 66 > Mercury EQ-P1 about 6' out in front of the kick.   Bass: Direct into Mercury M76m/1.

In the interest of efficiency, once we finished the basic acoustic guitar and vocal take, I just moved the mics around to record the percussion and drums. We figured we had a ton of tone already from the gear, so we decided to save some cash and mix at Jason's house in Pro Tools. Before we got down and dirty with the mix we recorded the bass direct with the Mercury M76m. Thanks for the great gear!"

Alan Meyerson on Mercury

Grammy-winning engineer and scoring mixer Alan Meyerson praises Mercury Recording Equipment in the 50th episode of Pensado's Place.

Dave Pensado: "When you think of a need for pristine high end, what's your analog choice?"

Alan Meyerson: "My analog choice... I've been using the Mercury EQ. It's an EQ-P1. It's sort of a Pultec-style EQ that I have three of... everything I do I have to do in threes, LCR [Left-Center-Right]."
